Dunno if I can post a link/pics without the JD guys getting into trouble, but Yakface just posted pics of a new Amazon exclusive set, Chewie and 3PO on Cloud City! The Chewie has a new headsculpt, and the 3PO looks to have interchangable limbs so you can put him in the backpack and have Chewie carry him! Pretty pumped for this one.

I've posted a bunch of links to Yakface content, so Jeff, please let me know if that is not good.

I'll continue the trend so Diddly doesn't get busted.

There are limits to what I can post ahead of product launch or convention events, but you guys should feel free to post anything here.  If Hasbro gets upset and requests me to take something down, I will (and I have in the past) delete direct links or images.  When that happens, we always leave the thread so folks know to go googling for the images, which Hasbro will never successfully scrub from everywhere once the cat is out of the bag.  :-X

Thanks Jeff.

I believe Jayson is actually very particular about what he posts on Yakface.  He doesn't hack databases, doesn't do anything unethical, and only pulls from publicly available data.  It still bugs Hasbro as its out of their control, but there is nothing illegal about what he is posting.

Keep up the good work Jayson and Jeff!!!  I'd be mostly lost on what to be hunting for tomorrow morning without your two web sites.

Although this isn’t “officially official” yet, I am very excited for this set. Both of the figures look great, and I always loved this scene from my favorite movie. Can’t wait.

Its listed as $50 on Amazon.   I sure hope it drops to the $40 price point you mentioned in the press snippet.

Today, December 21st, this is a "deal of the day" and has been reduced in price to $35.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SZXSSN5/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I had already ordered one and received it, but I think I'm going to indicate I want to return the item on my $50 order and I'll return one of the two after my 2nd order arrives. Never fails, I finally cave and order something, two or three days after receiving the item, Amazon knocks the price down.  :-\

I was happy to finally see a deal on this one because I have been waiting it out awhile now and $50 just seemed excessive. Finally pulled the trigger, and it should be here Monday!  ;D
